    2017 Navajo Missions Trip

    We will be taking frozen turkeys and firewood to a church on the Navajo reservation. A little over 11 cords of wood has already been donated by a generous family. Approximately 60% of the wood will need to be blocked and split. A portion (typically 1/2 to 1/3 cord) of firewood and a frozen turkey will then be delivered to needy families as an outreach -- putting action to Christ's command on how we should treat one another. We will also have the opportunity to pray with each family. In addition, there are a couple of projects at the church that the pastor has requested help with. We arrive Friday, work Saturday, and return Sunday. Come be part of a great way to touch families for Christ.

    Further details:

    • Meals: We will divide meals among the area teams. So one team (for example, Canon City) will be responsible for one meal for everyone. Group meals are Friday dinner; Saturday breakfast, lunch, and dinner; and Sunday breakfast. All other meals, as well as snacks, are on your own.
    • Cost: The only cost is your own transportation and how the team you are with decides to handle the meal costs. There is no other fee to participate.
    • Donations: If you want to donate money, send a check to: Rocky Mountain Ministry Network, 6295 Lehman Drive, Suite 202, Colorado Springs, CO 80918 and put "FCF" in the memo.
    • Lodging: The primary building we use has a dirt floor and a wood stove roughly in the middle. The guys will sleep in that building and we will cook, eat, and coordinate there as well. The ladies will stay in the sanctuary building which has a solid floor and a better wood stove. Bathrooms are the outhouses in the field next to the buildings.
    • Individual equipment: Work clothes, gloves, and work shoes for Saturday; Casual clothes for traveling; Sleeping gear (tarp, cot, sleeping bag, etc) - there are some mattresses there, but not enough for everyone, ladies could sleep on the pews
    • Team equipment: Chainsaws; Tools (hanging & wiring lights and installing a door); Meal supplies and cooking gear - there is a basic 2-burner propane stove there and very limited pots & pans
